14 July 2019 - Prime Minister Duško Marković recently visited a new road from Ulcinj to the border crossing with Albania Sukobin - Murićani - 13,5 km long section from Ulcinj to Krut which was put into traffic. 

On this occasion, the Prime Minister said that a 25 km long and 12 million EUR worth road links Ulcinj with Albania, which improves the life of citizens living there and the access of tourists to Montenegro.

Previously, a 4,75 km long section from Krut to the crossroads to Ostros and a 6,5 km long section from the crossroads to Ostros to Sukobin had been reconstructed.

When asked by a journalist whether the Government would help the Ulcinj municipality, the Prime Minister said that such a thing was done within the budget rebalance.

"You saw that the Government had proposed a budget rebalance not because we have a problem with finance, but because we want to allocate the excess funds to citizens, primarily to healthcare and those who are unemployed, to launch some new infrastructure projects, but also to assist the Municipality of Ulcinj to deal with development issues on its own," Prime Minister Duško Marković noted for the announcement of the Government of Montenegro.

Prime Minister Duško Marković recently visited the newly built 9 km long and 3,9 million EUR section of the Cetinje - Ivanova Korita road from Lovćen to Krstac.

On this occasion Marković said that this road is built according to all standards beyond the usual standards for local roads. It has all the characteristics of a regional road and he used an opportunity to congratulate the Directorate of Transport and the Contractor on an excellent job.
